"For almost three standard years, this war has raged. We can barely even count the numbers of the fallen."
―Jedi Master Plo Koon laments the Clone Wars[src]

A standard year,[1] also known simply as a year or a cycle,[2] was a measurement of time. The planet Lothal based its yearly calendar on a system known as Lothal Years.[3] A being's age was usually expressed in years.[4][5][6][7] The passage of a thousand years was referred to as a millennium.[8]

On Coruscant, a year was made up of twelve months[9] spanning 365 days of 24 hours each,[10] with no leap years.[11] The galaxy used a standardized dating system based off of the galactic capital Coruscant.[12]

The Galactic Empire had a five-year plan for Lothal and other Outer Rim Territory planets.[13]

An individual's birthday was celebrated once every year.[13]

On certain planets, including Lothal, a year was divided into four seasons (spring, summer, autumn, and winter) characterized by specific meteorological or climatic conditions[14]

Behind the scenesEdit

In Pablo Hidalgo's internal chronology, standard months are named "January" through "December", and standard years counted so that 0 BBY begins in "May 1977".[15][16]
